HID Global

HID Global, a provider of trusted identity solutions, announced that its HID goID solution has been extended to provide an end-to-end system for deploying and managing a mobile citizen ID program. From issuance through verification, HID goID is backed by the same high security standards for data, communication and privacy protection that are used in today’s physical electronic ID (eID) programs. 

This is a major step in delivering the full value of our goID solution, as we extend its capabilities for provisioning, updating and revoking mobile IDs to include the full range of citizen ID program functionality,” said Jessica Westerouen van Meeteren, Vice President and Managing Director, Citizen ID with HID Global.

Governments now have everything they need to move to a fully mobile society, including support for integrating HID goID with existing issuance systems, developing a citizen app, and ensuring compliance with international standards for digital credentials.

Utilising Integrale modular software suite

HID Global provides comprehensive support and training for the creation and deployment of the citizen app and verification solutionsKey HID goID solution components include an issuance system, utilising HID Global’s renowned Integrale modular software suite for the management of physical and mobile IDs; a gateway for mobile ID provisioning which can be managed locally by governments or offered as a service; and a software development kit (SDK) for the development of the citizen app to meet local requirements.

HID Global also provides comprehensive support and training for the creation and deployment of the citizen app and verification solutions.

HID goID includes off-the-shelf data structures enabling governments to issue mobile Passports that will help comply with digital travel credentials currently being developed by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and to issue mobile driver’s licenses that will help promote compliance with ISO18013-5 specifications being developed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).

Four layers of fraud-fighting security mechanisms

The solution protects privacy with end-to-end encryption and four layers of fraud-fighting security mechanismsThe solution enables countries to move from paper or electronic documents to mobile IDs, streamlining proof of identity issuance through over-the-air provisioning directly to citizens’ phones. It protects privacy with end-to-end encryption and four layers of fraud-fighting security mechanisms.

Additionally, citizens can control what verification data they share, and with whom. Post-issuance technologies keep mobile IDs current and trustable, and verification can be performed from distances up to 66 feet (20 meters).

HID goID also enables issuing authorities to easily add other government agencies and authorised private-sector entities into its ecosystem. This creates new opportunities to improve communication between governments and their citizens while opening the door for people to carry many different citizen and commercial IDs in one convenient mobile application.
